mb-6582 rev1 pcb

4 posts in this topic

I've had a rev 1 pcb and parts sitting around for a long time. I finally decided to build it and read the wiki, and at the bottom of the base PCB page says "revision 1 errors" and has links that don't work anymore.

What are the rev. 1 errors? I'll take any other pre-build advice people want to give for this project. :)

Thanks

I see nobody's answered you yet so until you get a response from the likes of Wilba hopefully this will help:

North American users with C64 power supplies need to solder a piece of wire where the power jack is. But I suggest you find Altitude's recent post about using a new switching regulator which allows you to use a simple 12V supply.

Also, there is a problem with the LCD connector - something about the way the contrast is wired - sorry I can't remember what that is right now.

Apart from that, my build tips would be to make sure you use the typical low-profile crystals, and mount the electrolytic capacitor near the bottom centre of the board so it's laying on its side. There's less clearance down there than you might think.

I've fixed the broken forum links in the wiki.

Thanks! Looks like they're minor issues, but I would have been pulling my hair out for a while trying to figure them out on my own :).
